    Which is the hardest LoZ game you played?

    Well? For me it was LttP. I got stuck at where I had to cut the curtains. 'Cause I didn't know you could cut them. Kind of embarrasing really. It also had the most challenging dungeons of those I've played, and as far as I know, I've only missed on Adventure of Link, OoT, and Majora's Mask.

    I recently played Zelda II again and remembered how hard it was. I can't even get past the first cave in it now.

    I've only played Awakening DX, OoT and the Oracles (I'm working on LttP right now) and the most difficult thing so far was the second dungeon in Awakening. My English wasn't even remotely as good as it is now, so I didn't know you had to kill those three enemies in order.

    I was also stuck for a while in Goron City in OoT because I didn't know you had to use Zelda's Lullaby to open the door. I blame my faulty English for that too.

    Link to the Past is the easiest Zelda game. Other than that, I dunno.

    I didn't find LttP easy. All the others I can beat easily, that ones just harder. But I haven't played Adventure yet, so meh.
    And Pierson, that's why there's the other option. So screw you, your mamma too, and your daddy! >>;

    Oot is only hard the first time through. Still fun everytime tho. LttP is hard most of the time.
    Fighting was the only thing I was ever good at, but at least I always fought for what I believed in.

    This is Japan, after all. The country where eating breakfast or driving to work somehow includes rape.

    THE GODDAMNED BOSS!

    Neither the dungeon not the boss itself were hard, but the bastard kept knocking me off the tower and I had to start all over again.

    Link's Adventure: The only one to date that I haven't beaten
    This is preposterous! Am I to assault the undead with nothing but sticks and harsh language?

    That god damn thunderbird in Zelda 2. I should really try to kill that bastard.

    And I can beat LttP with my eyes closed at 000 and 100% completion.

    I can beat LTTP at 100%/000 as well, but that doesn't stop Turtle Rock/Gannon's Tower from being annoying as all get out.

    Especially that one room in the tower were you have to light torches while the floor is crumbling and the little fireballs are flying around.

    Am I the only one that found Oracle of Ages really tough? Some of those puzzles were murder. Specially the Hero's Cave that you get from the password system.

    I liked Seasons a lot better than Ages. Prefer control over weather to time-travel. :3

    So... I learned a song in the future, then went back in time and taught it to the person who I learned it from. Isn't time travel fun?

    Zelda 2 is still the hardest for me, but I still like it. A lot of the difficulty for me came from the key setup and the bosses (epecially the last one).
    Who's pencil sharpener is this?

    I have only played the Legend of Zelda, the Adventure of Link, and A Link to the Past. I have played only a very little of Link’s Awakening. Of the first three, I found the Adventure of Link the hardest. I remember my first experiences with the game, long ago in 1989/1990. I had a lot of trouble fighting ironknuckles, since I could not time my jumps properly so to smite them when their shields were lowered: I needed to fight them in an area with a low ceiling so that I could smite them whilst coming down from my jump. I also remember having trouble fighting the goriyas in the cave south of Ruto, the axe-wielding enemies on Death Mountain, as well as general difficulty when I first attempted Midoro Palace and Death Valley.
    And if ye meet, yea, wheth’r afar or nigh,
    A lady fair that should your succour cry,
    Or damsel young that peril mayn’t avail,
    It you behov’th her welfare not to fail,
    If she require of you a knight’s servíce;
    Her worship whole ye shall warrant to kiss.
    Whoso a woman’s honour dare forsake,
    Shall lose his own. Fie, I pray Death him take!
    Ladies and damsels serve: this counsel hold,
    And worship shall ye have as bright as gold.

    -Chrétien de Troyes (fl. 1180), The Romance of Percival, or the History of the Grail, Lines 497-506, Translated (and embellished) by me.

    they all have some difficulty to them but after you played them a few times they tend to get easier.. except The Adventure of Link.. I still have nightmares about the red axe-throwing fiends..

    I'd say Majora's Mask. That whole 3 day thing got annoying and near the end you got really nervous that you weren't going to make it.

    Adventure was hard as hell.
    2nd Place goes to Link's Awakening for random-ass things like killing the 3 baddies in order in the 2nd dungeon or throwing pots at doors in the castle/3rd dungeon.

    You know what he meant.


    Well since this thread was necro'd and I apparently missed this the first time around I'll throw my vote in for both of the NES games for different reasons.

    The Original for both its reliance on the player and his/her circle of friends/family members uncovering secrets and sharing amongst themselves/inventing and consulting the internet; as well as the limited combat options and aggressive/unpredictable enemy AI in enemies such as Darknuts and Wizrobes.

    Zelda 2 for being an NES hard action adventure platformer that doesn't take death too kindly. Doesn't help that there are sections like Death Mountain, Valley of Death, & Great Palace that are marathons of pain.

    Zelda 3 is the next most difficult since enemies are actually set up to kick your ass if you aren't keeping up with the powerups and stocked with, at least, fairies.

    The series gets significantly easier around the N64 era and never looked back (although Skyward Sword may yet change this; I may edit this later depending on how much ass SS kicks).
